Create Space and Lower Costs with Automated Parking System
Properties that include green space and common areas in which people can interact are more beautiful, livable and desirable. However, attracting people means attracting and parking their cars.
Parking, while a necessity, is not the highest and best use of land on any project.
In the quest to create spaces that are not only beautiful and livable but also economically viable, developers and architects are constantly faced with the challenge of accommodating parking requirements without compromising on design or revenue-generating space. While green spaces and communal areas enhance the aesthetic appeal and desirability of properties, the need for parking facilities often poses a significant hurdle in achieving the perfect balance. Traditional parking layouts require substantial land allocation, which increases costs and leads to compromises in overall design or sacrifices in revenue-generating space.
In the delicate dance between aesthetics and functionality, architects and developers find themselves grappling with the challenge of meeting parking density requirements without compromising the essence of their projects.
The compact Robotic Parking System is the solution. Minimizing the impact of parking creates more space that can benefit the property as a whole.
Maximizing Space Utilization: A Quantum Leap in Efficiency
The statistics speak for themselves – Robotic Parking Systems require an average of 50% less land area to accommodate the same number of vehicles compared to traditional concrete ramp style garages. This means more room for green spaces, communal areas, or revenue-generating features, without compromising on essential parking needs.
Volume Matters: 2 to 3 Times More Parking Spaces
Robotic Parking Systems take efficiency to new heights by providing 2 to 3 times more parking spaces compared to their concrete ramp counterparts. While traditional garages struggle to push beyond 6 or 7 levels due to design limitations, our automated solution soars to 15 levels or more, optimizing the use of vertical space. This not only addresses the parking demands of densely populated areas but also opens up new possibilities for architects and developers, allowing them to reach unprecedented heights in urban planning and design.
6 Times the Parking on the Same Footprint
Taking all of the above into account, when compared to a concrete ramp garage, our Robotic Parking System has the capability to provide a staggering 6 times the amount of parking on the same footprint. All this land savings adds up to a tremendous automated parking system cost savings.
How Automated Parking Systems Work Case Study: Developer Can Save Over 60,000 Square Feet
Here’s a design case study that shows how Robotic Parking Systems created space for the architects and developers of a convention center complex.
We designed two options for 1200 parking spaces to demonstrate how automated parking systems work to that will free up an additional 60,000 square feet of land area.
Convention Center Option 1
Convention Center Option 1 saves the project 59,202 square feet of land area and gives the developer the option of adding an entire additional building. The developer gains approximately 25,833 square feet of GFA per floor of the additional building and the cost savings that goes along with it.

Convention Center Option 2
Convention Center Option 2 saves even more space and costs. It shows a different arrangement of the development where the parking garage is centered resulting in less foot traffic and a similar gain in additional floor area. The project gains 91,463 square feet of land area for two additional buildings. This gives the developer approximately 41,132 square feet of GFA per floor of the additional buildings.
